of libya impact the elections? let's go first to the headlines. >> president obama getting a firsthand look at some of the damage down gien the monster storm that tore through northeast. he was in hard hit new jersey. president obama saying red tape and bureaucracy will not hinder efforts. same storm dropped more than a foot of snow on six states. they are responsible for five deaths in west virginia. on long lines for gas. temporary price hikes are expected. good news for the air travelers. j.f.k. airport in new york and new york liberty has resumed service. laguardia is expected to do the same tomorrow morning. now back to "on the record". >> greta: terror attack in libya happened at the height of the presidential campaign. now the question is, will it impact the election? new fox news poll, asks the voters what they think about it? 44% say yes, 47% say no. joining us is bob cusack and michael crowley and byron york. >> pretty bad number for the president i thought. 44% at this stage of the game think that he is tried to mislead the american people. that is pretty bad. right now the news
's ten electoral votes are critical to mitt romney's hope to unseat president obama especially if president obama takes ohio. so we'll continue our tour of these swing states that are crucial to this election and turn to kristin crowl. she is joining us from madison, wisconsin. kristin welcome back inside "the war room." >> thank you so much for having me, governor. >> jennifer: you bet. when we last talked to you, you were in the throws of battling this scott brown recall stuff. how is early voting doing? and do we have any idea who has the edge of that in wisconsin? >> we have been very pleased with the way that early vote is shaping up. we have had lines every day in our democratic base areas across the state, we have had rallies and events and we feel like we have the edge in early vote it started a week ago and we have seen lines ever since. so we're very excited. >> jennifer: wisconsin's early voting ends the friday before the election instead through the weekend, how does that affect your efforts to get out the vote? >> we know on saturday mornings w
campaigning with the u.s. media heavily invested in president obama's re-election, how will that reportage play out? joining us now from north carolina with some thoughts, bernard goldberg. what do you expect to see on thursday through monday night? >> i don't think we are going to see anything different, billed in the final days of the campaign than we have seen throughout the campaign. what we have seen throughout the campaign is the media pretty much covering for president obama. so, let's take one example. i think the media will continue to show the same aastonishly lack of curiosity over how the president handled benghazi. they have showed very little interest before. they will will show little interest after. they will portray the president as a strong leader and presidential because of how he covered -- how he handled the hurricane, and he may talk about that even after thursday, so they many continue to portray him as a strong leader, which is perfectly fine. but i'm wondering if at some point we start to see comparisons between president obama and hurricane sandy and president bus
. >> with just five days left until the election president obama hit the trail today and came out swinging against mitt romney, he also touched preyful on the storm's impact, pledging to help those whose lives in his words have been turned upside down. >> there is no question in my view that -- that we really can't have four more years like the last 4 years, i know the obama folks are chanting 4 more years, four more years but or chant is this, five more days, five more days is our chant. >> just about an hour ago mitt romney held a rally in roanoke, virginia, romney once again asked supporters to donate to the red cross to help the storm victims but he quickly turned his sites on the election, mocking president obama for suggesting a cabinet level department of business. romney said that would not add jobs on main street. >>> many of you are doing last minute reading up on candidates in the many state and local propositions. ktvu.com can help you with that. go to the news, drop down at the top of the front page and click on politics to read or print the ballot for your county. >>> hundred
an obama election. romney, look for a 20 multiple. >> okay. john, i gather you're not worried about the effects of hurricane sandy. you're saying between the fourth quarter and first quarter, we will get back whatever we lost and then maybe some. >> yeah, i think so p. >> we're talking 2%, 2.5%. destroying bridges doesn't create jobs. >> i think we'd all agree when i look into the tone of the discussion, we're talking about moderate growth. 1.5% to 2% growth. we're really not talking about back to 3% to 4% growth. and i would say we really need to resolve these uncertainties about affordable care health care, we need to -- dodd-frank, the bush tax cuts. a lot of policy uncertainty whether that needs to be resolved before we move the economy forward.uncertaintywheto be resolved before we move the economy forward. >> i want to ask you about the last jobs number. i think the consensus is somewhere around 125,000 jobs. are you in the consensus or do you take the over or under? >> we're going 96,000 based upon the numbers that we've seen so far. and we think the unemployment rate stays p
family pays $2,000 a year more for gasoline than when president obama was elected. i will mention one more thing. he said he would work across the aisle on the most important issues. this is interesting. he has not met on the economy or on the budget or on jobs with the republican leader of the house or the senate since july. and so, instead of bridging the divide, he is making it wider. people wonder how is that he has fallen so short of what he promised. i think it is in part because he has never led, he has never worked across the aisle, he has never truly understood how jobs are created in this economy. by the way, he is making new promises. promises he will not be able to keep because he admits he is planning on staying on the same path. the same course we have been on will not lead to a better destination. the same path we are on means $20 trillion in debt at the end of a second term that we will not have. it means crippling unemployment. it means stagnant take-home pay, depressed home values, a devastated military. unless we change course, we may be looking at another recession
, cognizant of the vast unfinished business before hem vths we endorse the re-election of barack obama. a cnn poll has president obama leading mitt romney by four points, 50% to 46%. a new england college poll of new hampshire likely voters has president obama leading mitt romney by three points, 49 to 46. tonight, nate silver of the new york times blog forecasts that on november 6th, president obama has a 74% chance of winning re-election and over 13 point increase in the last two weeks. nate silver projects president obama will win 295 electoral votes and mitt romney will win 243. so krystal ball we are 12 days away from the ugliest creature that mitt romney has dragged into the presidential campaign, john sununu. he was driven out of washington, in scandal when he was the white house chief of staff for the first president bush. the man was driven out in scandal and it took mitt romney to drag him back in front of television cameras. >> it's been such a bizarre choice. he is the person he put forward the most. he's their lead surrogate and it's such a strange choice for his campaign and thi
it. it's go time. [ ♪ music ♪ ] >> obama: it's good to be back. >> romney: if the president is re-elected he still will be unable to work with the people in progress. >> our top priority is defeat president obama the second time. >> i can't thank president obama enough for his personal concern and passion. >> people are dumpster diving, and what they're going after here is the food. >> this is america folks. it is not supposed to be this way. >> job reports appear relatively good news. >> i think it would be helpful to have a president who actually understand job creation. >> ohio, i'm not ready to give up to make sure that the middle class is growing. >> you vote or you don't have to pay taxes. i'm sorry. i'm told that's not accurate. >> i'm tired of bronco bamma and mitt romney. >> it will be over soon abby. >> cenk: this is fun. presidentpresident obama is in ohio. he has a couple of elbows of his own. >> you have folks at the jeep plant who is have been calling their employers worried, is it true are our jobs being shipped to china? and the reason why they're making these calls is be
, this is what president obama said. >> obama: i'm not worried about the impact of the election. i'm worried about the impact of families and on our first responders. i'm worried about the impact on our economy and on transportation. the election will take care of itself next week. >> cenk: nice standard answer. nothing wrong with that. let's turn to the election and see where things stand. i want to give a sense of what to look out for on election day. i'm call it o-win. in order for president obama to win he needs four states other than the ones he has locked up already. that's o for ohio, and right now election of polls at "huffington post" is looking at, not just one poll but a collection. 48.4%-45.7% lead for president obama. the likelihood that president obama has an actual lead based on the polls is 97%. that doesn't mean that he has a 97% chance of winning ohio. it just means that he has 97% of leading today in ohio. now wisconsin 49.8%-46.0%. probability of the lead today is 98.5%. then you go to i had iowa. another somewhat comfortable lead for president obama. probability of his l
in this election and see how they played out in the target state. most voters don't like barak obama and like the slulish economy that resulted from them and likely to center a less democratic electorate thap is shown in 2008 exit polls and most polls, they are tending to show nationally and independent voters going for romney. that means each party's side is relatively eating and nen partisan vote for cappedidates and independent voters break the tie. >> we have a map that is it on the screen it shows solid red as the states for romney and blue for obama and light likely obama and the pink states are light red for romney. pennsylvania, wisconsin and you say those are likely to tilt romny's way. >> wisconsin tep electorial votes is a battle ground with governor scott walker reforms affecting the bargaining terms and there was a june recall election on governor walker and he won it with 53% of the vote and his side got well organized from that. and i think that balance of enthusiasm that seems to favor republicans this year, that might enable romney to get over the line there. and pennsylvania
out. president obama frames this election as a choice between moving forward or falling backward. when you look at his plan compared to mitt romney's there are similarities. wants to create 1 million new manufacturing jobs over the next few years, double the amount that the united states exports over the next five years. he wants to reform the tax code and get $4 trillion in deficit reduction over the next ten years and create an infrastructure fund to attract private inskresment. the fund that would give loans based on need and economic benefit. that was part of his jobs act. the president also says he would increase domestic production of natural gas and reduce america's dependence on foreign oil. all of it is ambitious but some voters are asking what's going to change in a second term. robert rice is a professor of public policy at the university of california berkeley and former labor secretary, not an official surrogate for the obama campaign. bob, good to see you again. >> hi, ali. >> the president is going to face opposition from congress. just like he has for the last two years
election. president obama is showing mitt romney and the rest of the world what real leadership looks like during a time of crisis. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> the federal government will be working as closely as possible with the state and local officials, and we will not quit until this is done. >> big government makes a big impact in new jersey, where the president tours the state with chris christie. >> it's been a great working relationship to make sure that we're doing the jobs that people have asked us to do. >> new jersey senator bob menendez was with the president today and he joins me live tonight. plus, jonathan alter on why good governance is good politics. e.j. dionne on mitt romney's troubling post-hurricane trouble. dnc chair debbie wasserman schultz on mitt romney's disappearing act. and bob shrum is here tonight, with a brand-new electoral map that will put a smile on democrats' faces. >> good to have you with us tonight, folks, thanks for watching. washington, pay attention. it has taken a life-altering disaster to show the country how our elected officia
're preparing for certain victory on election day. >> obama has a political environment problem. he's got an intensity problem. he's got an image problem. and he's got a ballot problem, and they all add up to a challenging tuesday next week. >> image problem? that's a new one. romney campaign senior advisers are out and about making bold statements to reporters, yet providing little evidence. >> the firewall that i think they talked about was iowa, wisconsin, and ohio. and right now, their firewall is burning. >> well, but the polling tells a much different story. it's not looking pretty for mitt romney in ohio. the president has a sizable lead back in wisconsin. and he's up in virginia by five points. the president even has a narrow lead in florida. today, mitt romney campaigned in florida to try to make up some ground. but it may be too late. nbc affiliate wttv obtained a memo from a worried gop adviser in west palm beach. >> we obtained an internal memo from a gop campaign adviser that says early and absentee turnout is starting to look troubling. the memo's conclusion? that the democr
of winning re-election and over 13 point increase in the last two weeks. nate silver projects president obama will win 295 electoral votes and mitt romney will win 243. so krystal ball we are 12 days away from the ugliest creature that mitt romney has dragged into the presidential campaign, john sununu. he was driven out of washington, in scandal when he was the white house chief of staff for the first president bush. the man was driven out in scandal and it took mitt romney to drag him back in front of television cameras. >> it's been such a bizarre choice. he is the person he put forward the most. he's their lead surrogate and it's such a strange choice for his campaign and this is not the first time that he's stepped in it. he's the one who had to apologize for saying the president needs to learn how to be an american. he's the one who called the president lazy after the first debate. this guy has been more of a liability. and on the colin powell endorsement, it was likely to be a one-day story. john sununu has ensured that we have a reason to continue talking about how colin powell's endo
into pennsylvania, where obama's never been on the air. and in the last week, the last week of the election, obama is spenning about $2 million in pennsylvania and romney and his allies are spending $11 million. pennsylvania is going to go for romney. he is 3 points ahead now. those 20 electoral votes will put him over the top, long before we call the 18 in ohio. >> greta: all right. let me ask but ohio. all the polls are neck and neck so they are tied. so tell me why those polls are not to be public believed and why listening to you, we should think you are right in calling ohio? >> because the polls that are out there, for example, the times/cbs poll interviewed 38% democrats and 29% of their sample are republicans. about an 8 or 9-point democratic advantage. now in 2008, there was an 8-point democratic advantage, that's a good sample for the '08 election. but in '04, there was a 4-point republican advantage. if you take '04, '06, '08 and 'steb, you get equal democrats and republicans in the sample. so if you believe there will be a huge turnout among minorities and young people, that the enthus
versus obama. the key question is just how can one data point influence voters ahead of the elections next week. that level of uncertainty, of course, going to make markets volatile after this report. it's coming at the same time where rising costs of hurricane sandy are coming in. that's something we have to look forward to in the november numbers, not impacting today. four days, of course, before the election. i think we can expect a politically charged payroll report later today. for now, back to you. >> we will see those numbers at 8:30 eastern time. less than three hours from now. julia, thanks so much. >>> as always this morning, you can e-mail me at waytooearly@msnbc.com. tweet me @williegeist. let me know what you're doing. >>> still ahead, richard engle takes to the skies above new york city to survey the damage. his report next. >>> plus -- >> number five -- >> single and looking to mingle? find that special someone on the early voting line. >> yeah, that's right. >> vice president joe biden stops by letterman to give his top ten reasons to vote early. that clip and a check
is not for obvious reason sois think if obama is re-elected i'm not sure, it is to the going to be a top priority. >> re-elected? >> re-elected, just gave me a cold chill. >> maybe in the second term it will be. if obama is re-elected he will be. and i suspect they would be happy to go back to george w. bush was trying to do a few years ago. but it is a tragedy we haven't really talked about because it is much harder to get something passed. >> how do you see it. >> i think the republican party is kursd and it's cursed itself. and they spent 22 debate, presidential candidates arguing about who was the most against or building the biggest, widest most daunting even electrified wall to keep people out. and mitt romney ran to the right of newt gingrich and rick perry. he was the most try ghent-- strident, round them up and toss them out of the country. >> energy time, and political capital to pass legislation state after state to make it more difficult to vote, primarily for latinos. and third they don't campaign in their neighborhoods or their community t they don't ask for their vote, and finally
out on any limb, given my weight, but if the election were held tomorrow, obama would win, based on early voters. >> evan? >> obama, but we still have a long way to go. >> nina? >> i hate doing this, but i would say obama because of the ground again, but that is just today. >> that's ok. colby? >> the national tracking polls as them close, but if you go to the key battleground states, obama still holds a lead in those states and that will put him over the top. >> what is the ground game, mark? >> the organized effort over months to identified not only supporters not onlyleaners -- only supporters, but leaners. by election day, you know who your voters are and you want to be sure they go to a. > -- to vote. >> in many the battleground states, obama has more field offices. >> it comes down to micro- managing and micro-issuing these folks. the republicans have a better ground game in 2004, and a lot of people think it that is why they won that close election, and it fell into disrepair today are building it back up now, but i don't think they are near where obama is yet. >> which c
the issues. don't just vote, vote smart. >> obama: the election will take care of itself next week. right now our number one priority is to make sure we are saving lives. >> announcer: heard around the country and seen on current tv, this is the "bill press show." >> bill: president obama on the job yesterday at the white house, commander in chief for hurricane sandy. back to your calls about how this election -- how the storm impacts the election. first, here is a little item that caught my attention. even members of the armed services, subject to identity theft. story out of washington state. officials raided several locations in washington state. finding that hundreds of people including active duty military personnel had their identities stolen. you hear a story like that. you need some protection against identity theft. i recommend -- what i've got. lifelock ultimate. i recommend it. it includes keeping track of your bank accounts. but of course, lifelock can't protect you or your bank account if you're not a member
drive them to the polls on election day? even among the fervent obama supporters at this rally, this is a common theme. >> were you more excited four years ago or more excited today? >> i have to say honestly, i was more excited four years ago. >> reporter: meanwhile, fervent supporters at the romney rally often have their own nuanced motivations. are you more emotional about wanting romney to win or wanting obama to lose? >> wanting obama to lose, yes. most definitely. >> reporter: that motivates you? >> yeah. he let the whole country down. >> reporter: candidates appreciate any kind of support. but the more unconditional and enthusiastic that support is, the more likely that voter will go to the polls. and voter turnout on november 6th will be critical. romney strategists have been concerned that the perceived lack of their candidate's competitiveness could ultimately lead to less enthusiasm and therefore, a lower turnout. so the message being emphasized to the gop base is that romney can win. than makes the message from obama strategists all the more interesting. in order to
gets elected, that's the debate you'll have. if obama gets elected, it's how high do taxes go. if romney is legislated, how low can we keep taxes. the second part we need badly is how can we reform the tax system? how can we either go to a flat tax or at least flatten our taxes so that we end up with one or two rates. we end up with fewer deductions, fewer exemptions, put that money in a lower rate. i think governor romney is absolutely right, you don't list those now. he couldn't know what they are now. that's what you negotiate about, but the difference in direction will be dramatic. in one case, the direction will be how do we increase revenues to the government? the other case, the direction will be how do we at least keep revenues where nay are and see if we can't reduce them a little. where do we find reductions in the spending? that's a very, very exciting period of time to go through. that's what i went through when i worked for president reagan as associate attorney general. president reagan, as you know, even with a democratic house of representatives, was able to do
prices at the pumps and fewer jobs. today gasoline cost twice as much as when president obama was elected. when i'm elected we're going to change course on energy. we can help hold down prices at the pump, grow new energy and manufacturing jobs and get north american energy independent. [applause] now you know if the president is re-elected he's going to continue to promote government and demote businesses. he chose by the way his own jobs counsel sill was made up of the biz leaders he selected. it's been nine months since he met with them. i see free enterprise as a means for people to fulfill their dreams. yesterday i was in virginia. i met a lady who has been running her family restaurants for years. it's been in the family for 82 years. and at high point she employed 82 people. -- 200 people. she just closed it down. telling me that regulations and taxes and obama care and the effect was of the obama economy put her out of business after 82 years. she teared up. this wasn't about money. this was about the future for her family and for her family of employees employs. look i want to he
? >> i should not go out on any limb given my way, but if the election were held tomorrow, barack obama would win, based on the superior effort of the obama campaign at this point turning out early voters. >> evan? >> butobama the whistle of a long way to go. >> nin >> i hate e doing this but obama because of the ground game. >> colby? >> the national tracking polls has been very close. in the batattle e ground statates, obama still holds a lead and that will put him over the top. >> what is the ground again, mark? >> the organized effort by the campaign over months to identify and not only supppporters but people w who are undecide it, and persuade them on a one by one retail basis. weeks before election day, at you know who your voterers are and you get them to vote. >> in many of the battle ground states, obama has more field offices. >> it is down to micro-managingng and micro-issug these folks. republicans had a better ground game in 2004, and a lot of people think that is why they won that close electio and it fell into disrepairhey are building it back up now, bbut i don't think
president obama the election? we'll have a full report. brian williams one of the few journalists with access to president obama did not comal the president about libya. we will show you what happened there. >> why do we want to see president obama's college records? >> transparency. >> bill: donald trump still pounding the obama birth certificate issue. >> where do you work he was born. >> i have noddy. i really have no idea. >> bill: gutfeld and mcguirk have some thoughts on that. caution. you where to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. >> hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. will libya lose the election for president obama? that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. excellent reporting by fox news correspondent jennifer griffin has revealed that during the four hour fire fight in benghazi, libya on 9/11, americans under siege from muslim terrorists armed with heavy weapons repeatedly asked for help from the cia shockingly help did not come. the agency could have called for air of cover or moved a delta force team to the area.

that obama wouldn't be re-elected. now if obama gets re-elected, that has passed. and john boehner will have to think about his feature as speaker. if he wants to stand with the tea party or stand with the vast moderate majority of people in this country who believe that there have to be some revenues, and there have to be some cuts, and there have to be entitlement reforms. there's a rational, sane middle road out there. if romney wins, then he will have to deal with the democrats in the senate which he will want to do, and he will have to say to his right wing as he has implicitly over the last three or four weeks that no, guys, we're not going to have this extreme policy. and as for tax rates mattered, i mean, i think we all live through the great depression of the 1990s after bill clinton raised taxes. and the great depression of the 1980s after ronald reagan raised taxes, especially on business, three times. >> we're going to have to see stop -- no, we're going to have stop, take a break. >>> when we come back, we'll talk inevitably about all this, but also going forward what's going to
